SRINAGAR: Chairperson of Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) Syeda Aasiya Andrabi on Friday castigated NIA for “unnecessarily harassing” the family members of United Jihad Council (UJC) chief Syed Salahuddin.
“Salahuddin’s eldest son and five others have been picked up the NIA over fictitious charges and are being harassed. This useless agency has failed on all fronts to pressurise the leadership by concocting false stories and cases, now it is trying to harass the family members in order to emotionally torture the leadership,” Andrabi said in a statement.
She said such tactics have neither worked in past nor will work in future. “Syed Salahudin has left behind a family for a pious cause, though the harassment and the torture of the family will be painful but these things don’t hamper his efforts for the freedom struggle in Kashmir,” she said. “So far, India has failed on all fronts and will continue to fail in the future as well.”
Andrbai added, “It has been established that this agency is trying hard to invoke false cases against the innocents. This is nothing but harassment but India should know that these cheap tricks won’t deter the leadership and the people of Kashmir from pursuing this pious cause.”
Meanwhile, Aasiya paid glowing tributes to two militants killed in Balhama, Khonmoh.
“India must understand that one day it will have to bow before the aspirations of Kashmiri people,” she said.
